In an effort to build upon my Hitter Scarcity Hypothesis - the move towards 12- and 13-man pitching staffs has necessarily depleted the free agent hitting pool, I wanted to see which players are already eligible at multiple positions. If the move towards 12+ pitchers per team continues, then I expect there to be efforts by major league teams towards having a Chone Figgins/Tony Phillips type utility player who can play every day at almost every position and be a valuable fantasy player.
Right now,the list of major league players eligible at more than one position based on one-game eligibily rules totals 104 ex-DH. Here is a list of those qualifying at four or more. (There are 40 with 3+ Postion Qualification (PQ):
If the change in pitching staffs becomes consensus, then I would expect this grow. It may take a year or two as teams refocus how they develop players, but I am interested to see if it occurs.
